Pre-Contact Training

The 2 feet on, 2 feet off behavior on steps is taught prior to working the actual contact obstacles.

Filly learns to offer this behavior on a variety of steps, platforms, and surfaces before being introduced to the dogwalk and aframe.

With a solid foundation in pre-contact training, the 2 feet on, 2 feet off behavior is easily transferred to the low set contact obstacles. See Contact Training to view Filly working the aframe.


Note: This method can also be used with experienced dogs who need to be retrained or refreshed on working contacts.
